A couple of years a buddy of mine had his bike shipped from Texas to Iowa, the dealer used a shipper that they use. It was an enclosed trailer. Dealer usually should help you with the move.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

even though I used AAA before, I would avoid them now.


they transfer over to "local trucks" at each end, and independent carriers on the road.
they are nothing more than a dispatcher using independent truckers.
no way to guarantee that the bike will be taken care of by experienced m/c movers.

in fact, when my bike arrived, I had to "take over" on the unloading process because it became apparent "real fast now" that they had never ridden a motorcycle and did not know how to control it backing it off the truck.

I would use the mainline haulers, like http://www.haulbikes.com/

or some one that really emphasises they know their stuff.

Thanks for all the input. I used UShip, the driver picked up in Indiana on Thursday 5/17 and delivered in Florida 5/21. Funny thing
also had a 1947 Studebaker in the trailer, could not get him to trade.
